Mobile Commerce Triples Since 2012

GankIt.com (OTCQB: GANK), one of the fastest growing online auction sites, is now an attractive option for bargain hunters on their mobile devices. According to analysts at Plunkett Research, Ltd., m-commerce is exploding. The use of smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices to complete online transactions saw $41.68 billion in sales in 2013, a 68.2 percent increase over the previous year.

“With mobile commerce tripling from 2012 to 2014, the rollout of our mobile website is well-timed as we make it easy for the 180 million wireless connections in the US to easily engage,” said John Arnold, CEO of GankIt Corporation. He added, “Last year, 50 percent of the visits to Walmart’s website were coming from mobile devices, and we expect to see a similar trend on the GankIt website.”

According to a recent forecast by Goldman Sachs, there will be as much mobile commerce in 2018 as e-commerce in 2013, roughly $238 billion.

GankIt is an engaging, interactive shopping experience where members enjoy a fair and honest venue with excellent customer service. The site offers the latest electronics from Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and others in an e-commerce setting, alongside industry giants such as eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY) and Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN).
